I'm On A Break !

Hello Lovely People,

I just want to start by saying that you're all the most wonderful people and I love you all to pieces and thank you for creating this lovely little blogging community.

Some of you may know that I'm an A-level student and in June this year I will be sitting the exams that determine whether I will get into university. I struggle with college work a lot, from understanding the work to having the motivation and focus required to sit down and do it. So, I hope you understand why I've made the decision to take a break from blogging. I have put in a lot of thought and consideration to this decision and decided that I will stop blogging ( and unfortunately won't have enough time to visit your lovely blogs either ) from today until the end of July. My exams finish on the 29th of June however I would like to take the month of July to spend some quality time with my girlfriend and learn who I am without the stress of exams and college and find out who I want to be now .

I will be continuing with yoga and part of me really would like to still share my yoga journey with you guys but I appreciate you're all very busy and as I won't have time to visit your blogs and considering I will not be posting my normal posts I thought I would leave this decision up to you. If you would still like me to post short weekly yoga updates then let me know in the comments ! I would love to continue them because I do them for myself and my own motivation as much as anything else but if nobody is interested then I will keep track of my progress in a personal diary.

I hope you all understand why I'm doing this. I feel that for the next four months I need to put all my energy into fighting this last fight and passing my exams. I will be purely focusing on my health and fitness and studying ( I feel the two things tie together ) and I will be removing all social media apps that distract me from my phone. Now is the time for focus.

I will be back on August 1st and ready to introduce a hopefully fresh and happy me who will be about to start a whole new adventure and I really hope you will all be their to join me !

I love you all lots and lots !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)

Love, Marianne xxx


  1. good luck with your exams, although I bet you don't need it lovey! xo

  2. I wish you so, so much luck with your exams, and with finishing up school :) And of course we'll all understand your needing to focus on that! That said, if you're itching to write a yoga post every once in awhile, I'll likely be around to read 'em!

    Lots of luck,

  3. Obviously you need to make sure that your schooling comes first! I'm glad that you took the time to let us know (I was getting a little bit curious about where you went to!) We'll still be here and waiting for you, and if you get the chance I'd love to read a few yoga posts from you :)

    Best of luck, Marianne!

  5. We completely understand your decision and I want to wish you all the best. I know how hard it can be to do school, get prepared for exams and blog at the same time. I took a break as well last year before my exams and it was an amazing decision of mine. I wouldn't mind if you wrote a post there and there if you will really want that and if you will find a bit of time but do not feel pressured to do that. Take care of yourself and see you in August! :) x

  6. I totally understand. I plan to take a short-termed break from blogging, in order to prep for an upcoming piano exam. A large majority of my parents' money are riding on me to pass this exam pressure(!)
